Noor Zaidi , University of Pennsylvania Follow. This dissertation is a study of the Bibi Pak Daman shrine in Lahore, Pakistan and the Sayyeda Zaynab shrine in Damascus, Syria and of how these shrines were made sacred in the 20th century.

The dissertation will first trace hagiographies related to Zaynab and Ruqayyah and how these narratives capitalized on transnational collective memories of Karbala to reinterpret their significance to local contexts.

These saints and their shrines were also increasingly interwoven into Syrian and Pakistani narratives of national exceptionalism. Secondly, these shrines emerged as important national spaces and sites onto which competing claims of authentic authority and ideology were played out.

By the end of the s, the Sayyeda Zaynab and Bibi Pak Daman shrines had become increasingly prominent as sites of meaning-making, especially within a changing geopolitical landscape and as narratives of Karbala were being reinterpreted around the world in the service of newly assertive Shiite identity and visual culture. Thus, this dissertation explores how these shrines were sacralized in the 20th century through narratives, politics, and finances.

Through this dual focus, the project will reveal the way that politics, ritual, gender, and faith function in tumultuous, multi-denominational societies where the balance between religious legitimacy and national ideologies necessitates a constantly-evolving policy towards pilgrimage and shrines.

The Shrien of Bibi Paak Daaman

At the centre of the courtyard of the Bibi Pak Daman shrine in Lahore, surrounded by hundreds of devotees on any given day, is the twisted trunk of an ancient waan tree. Rising from the middle of the courtyard, it forms an overarching canopy. On a hot summer afternoon, several devotees doze under its shade, lying on the cool marble floor. This tree is believed to have magical properties. Several female devotees yearning for a child eat its leaves in the hope that their wish will be fulfilled.
